INTERNATIONAL STUDY AND TRAVEL OPPORTUNITIES AT FMU
At FMU you have the opportunity to study abroad for a few weeks, a semester or even a year! We have eight exchange partner institutions in six countries, as well as various summer Language and Culture Programs and courses with exciting travel components.
Honors students can serve as FMU Honors Ambassadors during spring break at one of our eight sister schools. Last year, for instance, Honors Ambassadors visited Ireland; this year's ambassadors are heading to England!
Also, we have just partnered with Coastal Carolina University to offer students the opportunity to attend both institutions' exchange programs. See below for more information!
